Huron Valley State Bank Employees Give Back to the Community
Casual for a Cause Program Raises over $1,600
Once a month, Huron Valley State Bank holds a special Casual for a Cause (Jean’s Day). This program allows employees to wear jeans in exchange for providing a donation for the designated charitable cause. The causes are either for an individual in need or a large-scale community program. In 2018, the Casual for A Cause program raised over $1,600.
“Looking back at the funds raised in the past year is both astonishing as well as rewarding,” said Nellie Corey, Customer Service Representative and director of the program. “This program truly helps us engage and support the community surrounding us, and watching it grow and develop over the years shows the true value.”
The Casual for a Cause days are typically offered the last Friday of every month. There were a couple of instances when the bank added a second Jean’s Day due to a strong need that came up within the month. The program assists both internal Huron Valley State Bank efforts, such as special collections for partner elementary schools, food drives during the holidays, as well as several private individuals in need or community organizations.
“Casual for a Cause is an exemplary program that allows us to give back to the community. I am pleased to have such considerate and giving employees that give us the privilege of helping those in need. Huron Valley State Bank is proud to help raise funds for so many deserving causes, and we would not be able to do so without all of hard work and effort that Nellie Corey has poured into this program,” said Jack Shubitowski, President and CEO of Huron Valley State Bank.
In 2018, the bank gave to a combination of causes including: Huron Valley Optimist Club, Fountain of Living Waters Church, AM VETS, MI Abilities, Supportive Alternative Living, American Cancer Society, Huron Valley Schools, and a couple of private individuals in need.
